His and Hers-A A +A
Thursday, October 10, 2013
When two people are in love, their family and friends may comment that the couple is starting to look like each other. Matchy-matchy clothes may be the one of the culprits for such an observation, as it’s become quite trendy for couples to dress alike. If wearing the exact same look is the couple’s thing, that’s totally fine. However, the unisex T-shirt and jeans outfit may start to get a little redundant. Here are a few ways to try out dressing up as a couple by interpreting a style in ways that aren’t too girly for him, nor too boyish for her.
A T-shirt is the most common way that couples like to match. But she doesn’t have to wear the exact same one he’s got on. Her feather-print shift dress complements the print of a Native American chief on his T-shirt, while his shorts mirror some of the same colors from her dress.
Blue stripes always look fresh. He wears his knit sweater with gray jeans, while she does a more nautical take with her sleeveless striped knit, shorts with an anchor print, and accessories in red, white and blue.
A paisley print works well for guys and for girls, especially when worn as a bottom and with a darker color scheme. He can wear it with a short-sleeved polo shirt with colors from the print. She can put on a top with pretty stud details on the shoulders, plus some earrings that pick up the white and gold from her outfit.
Wearing cheerful colors emanates the happiness of a cute couple. He can tone down a bright polo shirt with his khakis. She can do a girlier look than his shirt and trousers: Her bright top has interesting details, paired with floral pants that are very popular right now.
